The Punchline Comedy Club’s hugely popular improvisational show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ is back again by popular demand!

 

The ‘Whose’ Who

For those unfamiliar with this unique concept, the TV series, Whose Line is it Anyway?remained a massive hit in the UK for over a decade and now enjoys the same success in the USA after Channel 4 sold the show to NBC.  According to The Times, this show with its new cast is “Pure talent, better than the TV show!” The five renowned comedic alchemists promise to hit comedy gold by taking scenarios, genres, phrases and props suggested by the audience and turning them into a hilarious array of sketches, songs, comic dramas and more.

 

Stephen Frost’s list of accolades include starring in several episodes of the iconic historical sitcom Blackadder, as well as playing a regular role in cult student comedyThe Young Ones, is the most recognisable performer on this tour. Trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Frost is well known on the comedy circuit for his work with The Comedy Store Players and his appearances on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

 

Steve Steen, best known for his improv partnership with Jim Sweeney, was a frequent regular on the show while it was aired, and like Frost he has also featured in Blackadderin addition to being a mainstay on TV panel shows in the 80s and 90s. He is currently a regular guest of the Comedy Store Players in London. 

 

Andy Smart has been a featured member of The Comedy Store Players since 1995, arriving there from a round-about passage via street entertainment and one too many visits to the Pamplona Bull Running Festival, which he does like clockwork every year.

 

Ian Coppinger, described by the Irish Times as, "A sophisticated Billy Connolly," is one of Ireland's busiest comedians and comic writers, having penned scripts for The Late Late Show and The Stand Up Show, but whose primary concern remains The Comedy Improv, which he founded in 1992 and performs every Monday at the International Bar in Dublin.
